F3 Went Down

My beautiful f3 went down today the damages wasn't too bad but now I need to replace a few parts and upgrade some parts. My dealer told to me order parts take a while anyone experienced this? My next question is would any of the parts I am ordering worth the money or the upgrade?

1. Ohlins full suspension
2. Marchesini Magnesium Wheels (dealer is trying to see if they are available for F3)
3. Brembo brake mono bloc and master cylinder
4. Carbon Fiber body parts (replace plastic parts)

Oh crap, were you on the bike riding? If you were, hope you weren't hurt. A little damage can be a great excuse for some upgrades

I think the biggest bang for buck from that list would be the OHLINS.

While the brakes and wheels are always a nice upgrade, you probably wouldn't feel the real advantages over stock ones until you rode well and truly over street legal speeds, like on a track.

Carbon always looks nice.

But hey, I'm all for personalising your bike how you want it. Your bike, your hard earned money, buy what you like

Just my humble opinion

Hope your back on the road sooner than later

Sorry to hear about you going down mate, hope you are okay.

Yes you will have to wait for some of the parts, or you can order it yourself via one of the forum sponsors.

The suspension upgrade is well worth doing, and there's a lot of options out there for the F3, not just Ohlins, so shop around a bit first. Bi-Tubo, Nitron and a few other have great options out there.

As far as the brakes go, monoblocks are a good option, but there's nothing wrong with the standard M/C on the F3, for road use in any case.

Carbon is all your choice like Rob said.

Good luck, hope you get sorted quickly.

All of those parts will help the performance of the bike. The bonus is they very well may be cheaper than buying new oem parts. Suspension and wheels you will notice a definite difference, while calipers will be more of a subjective thing unless you really push your bike a lot. Regular cast/oem monoblocks probably not going to be very noticable, if at all. On the other hand if you spring for something in the Brembo performance/race line(i.e. super spendy) then that will certainly be an upgrade one will notice. Also, upgrading the stock master cylinder is a good idea. Brembo is most folks first choice, but there are some good alternatives out there as well. You'll want to research the difference in sizes of pumps so you can determine which would be the best fit for your style of riding. The carbon may save a few pounds but not much else other than looking really nice and different that a stock bike. If the panels are out there they may end up being cheaper than oem stuff through the dealer so might not be a bad idea.
No matter what you decide to get it will always be more expensive to go though the local dealer. Most parts you are looking for can be found on here and i think there are some nice parts currently on ebay too.
